Yutang Lin

Originally no problem to enjoy reliance.
Once doubts arose hindrance developed.
Even cast off the shadow still looms big.
Need time for mind to clear the dust out.


When doubts arise it is difficult for people to realize their own bias. As doubts evolve with thoughts all kinds of mental hindrance flourish. The real situation is beyond those worries and considerations; it is simply a reflection of the concurrent conditions. Only when the mind is tranquil could one realize the original state free of worries; one had better begin the cultivation of mental peace and clarity early.
